2002 Ford Focus 4 cyl Front Wheel Drive 101000 miles
I have a 2002 wagon, ztw, that needs new tires after only 23k. The right rear is completely bald and the car has been difficult to steer. I am being told that it is mostly likley a bushing assembly or bushing being worn or out of place that is causing this and the repair will be upwards of $800/ the vehicle is not even paid for, and it seems to be early for such expensive repairs. Does this amount seem reasonable or could it just need an alignment. The alignment and chasis design has been blamed for this poor wearing in the past, and that if I bring it in to be aligned and balance every 2000-3000 miles the tires should wear well. Should I get a second opinion on this bushing issue?
have the same problem?
